Crazy Housewives

December 20, 05 by kenrich

Just recently, China began broadcasting Desperate Housewives. But in doing so, they changed the title to “Crazy Housewives” and then censored some of the more risque scenes in the series. And of course, they dubbed all of the dialogue into Mandarin Chinese. Some of the words were changed in the translation to further water down the content.

I think the reason they decided to allow this show is that it portrays American suburbia as mis-guided and immoral which really appeals to Chinese authorities. Either that or this is just an experiment to see if giving it’s citizens shows like these will help to make their society more peaceful and less rebelious.
